So In case I have to change the batteries in my active pick ups, how to i remove all of the strings and keep the bridge from sinking down?

Im confused...? The battery slot for your pickups is at the front side of the guitar and not the back?

Yes, you simply take of the plate, replace the batteries and put the plate back on, you dont have to go near the strings

With a floating bridge you should never remove all the strings at once, unless you're changing pickups or doing something that requires you to re-intonate anyway. When I first changed strings on my Gretsch, the bridge fell off 'cause I removed all of them at the same time and it took me a couple of hours of work before it was intontated correctly.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

Sorry, didn't know that.. I thought you had to take out the pickups to replace the battery. :P

Close thread? Lol

Whenever I change strings on my floating bridge (a ZR from the S series) I take them all off at once and block the trem with a AAA battery. It works every time and I never have to re-intonate or set anything back up (as long as the string tension and tuning stay the same). I'm not sure what kind of floating bridge you have on your Gretsch, but as far as Floyd Rose style bridges are concerned, it's in no way an issue.

I think you are mistaken. There are no Ibanez S series guitars with a floating bridge. In fact, there might even be no Ibanez guitars in general that have floating bridges. You have mistaken the term "Floating Bridge" with "Floating Tremolo".

Floating Bridge (meaning it's not attached to the body):

There is a difference.
